    Did Graeme leave NBC?

      No

      I don’t think so. He did one of the games last weekend for NBC (see https://worldsoccertalk.com/2016/08/19/epl-commentator-assignments-nbc-gameweek-2/). Sometimes the talent are working for a different broadcaster or they have other commitments.

        Ah, I was on the road last weekend so I missed the matches, thanks

    I’d love to hear from the Arlo lovers after today’s performance.

    The guy must truly believe he gets paid by the word.

    I recorded and watched the Spurs ( Proudfoot ), Leicester ( Jones ), Watford ( Darke ) matches before White at Hull.

    By halftime of the Hull match, I was exhausted and my ears were bleeding from White’s complete inability to let a match breathe.

    What happened to this guy? His first year as NBC’s EPL head talking head was excellent.

    Please, NBC, please make Arlo listen to a Jon CHampion broadcast. PLEASE!

    Jist beIN SPORTS Mena… All matches of Premier League on beIN SPORTS Mena.

    • Christopher Harris

      August 27, 2016 at 7:35 pm

      The listings are for USA only. Sorry!

      • REza

        August 27, 2016 at 8:31 pm

        You was wrong!for example i saw match of Tottenham and Liverpool On beIN SPORTS 11 Mena With the voice of Jim Proudfoot and Danny Murphy … beIN SPORTS Mena holds right to broadcast premier league with Same comantators!

        • Christopher Harris

          August 27, 2016 at 8:35 pm

          Some of the announcers are USA only such as Arlo White and Lee Dixon for Hull vs. Manchester United.

          If Proudfoot and Murphy were on beIN SPORTS in MENA, then beIN SPORTS must be using the world feed (most of the games in the US use that same feed except for 2-3 matches each weekend where NBC uses their own announcers).

          • REza

            August 27, 2016 at 8:52 pm

            yes. exactly. saw Hull vs. Manchester United with voice of Peter Drury! not Arlo White.

            Do you know where i can find the list of announcers in beIN SPORTS Mena?

            Another question… beIN SPORTS USA what has condition in USA in terms of rights broadcasts of Sports? gooD?

    2 points dropped by Liverpool. What is Milner doing at left back? At fault for the goal.

    Tottenham will be pretenders this season unless they bring reinforcements. With CL football, they won’t crack the top 4 this season. Looked disjointed, to say the least.

    What happened to NBC Live Extra TV channels? Are they not being used this week?

    • Christopher Harris

      August 27, 2016 at 11:19 am

      They are in use. Which TV provider (cable/satellite) are you using?

    • LIguy

      August 27, 2016 at 7:06 pm

      They were available for me on Uverse today

    Are you going to post a world cup qualifying schedule? I think some of those games start next week

    • Christopher Harris

      August 27, 2016 at 6:14 am

      Yes, later today.

    Welcome back Arlo White! Plus love Lee Dixon as a co. Great combination. Love Jim Proudfoot as well. Good commentator.

    From having to suffer 3 Drury games last weekend to NONE this one. Bliss!

    • Mad About ManU Mourinho

      Top notch game called by Arlo and Lee, as always.

      Bring on the downvotes, haters. 😉

      Peter Drury is absolutely the best commentator in the world right now. He is my favourite
